Was just curious on what waxes or sealant do some use on their vehs.... oh and im not talking about a full ceramic..
I been polishing mine first with Angel wax Perfect Polish (GREAT STUFF) and then Zymol Carbon Wax...
And also have used lots of other products on the low cost side and high price side..... Turtlewax ice products have come a long way and are pretty good... but the zymol carbon wax still gave me the best gloss..

Collonite or fusso wax are amazing as far as wax goes.
I had finally tried the fusso,,,, and it was awful.... killed the gloss and ended up having to redo car with other products to get my shine back...

CarPro Reload works really well. I was using it on my car before I had a ceramic coating and it still worked great.

25 years ago I loved Zaino Bros products. I don't know if they are still really good or not.

Been using Meguiar's products for a while now. I get good beading action and I've had good luck with them since I've been using it.

I've used:

- NXT 2.0
- Ultimate Wax
- Liquid Wax
- Gold Class

Might start looking into other products now that people have been posting a wide range of different ones.

I haven't played with carnauba waxes in a while but use to really like Pinnacle Souveran, S100 and Lusso Oro waxes... Easy enough to work with... Ammo's Creme is a ridiculous show car type gloss, it doesn't last long but awesome before a night out...
I had a 3 series back in 2002 that probably had 300 coats of various Zaino products on it, Z1,Z2 I think the glaze was Z5 maybe? than the flashing additive was released... It worked well, the process of layering was probably more of a gimmick in hindsight but I also enjoy spending the time waxing cars... They had an amazing car wash soap and QD type spray though, ultra slick finsih from both...

Thats crazy, I've heard such good things about fusso, theres nothing worse then having to redo stuff. I used collonite for years until ceramic coatings came out. Mckees has a ceramic infused wax thats suppose to be very good also, they make solid products.

Whats keeping you from doing a ceramic coating? If you want superior protection and gloss, ceamic is the way to go.

Zaino seems to have fallen off the radar in recent years. It used to be all the rage on the LS1.com car forums. I actually have the Pinnacle Souveran in my wax arsenal but a crack developed in the lid and it turned solid.........so much for that!n P21S has a good 100% Carnauba which is pretty good.

Car Pro Reload is pretty good too. It will last about 6 months which is good for a spray on product. I use it as a topper over Car Pro Essence Extreme Gloss Enhancer. It is a great two step method for those who don't want to spend a lot of time prepping their car for a full blown ceramic coating.
